As a 50+ woman who didn't exercise enough over the winter, there were a couple of moments that really challenged me - that said, you don't know what you are capable of achieving, until you are right in the thick of the experience and the only choice is to conquer your fears! I'm proud of myself for making it through 4 hours of awesome thrills, and equally grateful to my teenage daughter, for supporting me through the afternoon. This adventure brought us closer. Loved it all - the Tikiwai [glow worms], caving, black water rafting [tubing really], abseiling and even the vertical climb at the end.

Very bad

Very rude guide and owner. We spend bloody around $500 and they treated us like we are bad people. We got little bit Late because we couldn't find the place. They did not took us with them, which was fair enough. However, when we trying to ask for any other way, because we invested $500 on their business, they said hang your phone otherwise we gonna block your number, which was out of no where so rude to say. I would not recommend to anyone.

Amazing experience!

We had so much fun on this guided tour of the Mangawhitikau Caves with Luke as our guide! I felt safe all the way through (even with the abseiling given my fear of heights) and would definitely recommend it :) While you don't need to be very fit, it does require a little bit of exertion, but the guides are accommodating to different levels of fitness.
